CCEE1626 - Mixed Media

For Vicky's last week as hostess for the CCEE Stampers, she told us that she needs to practice mixed media; so that's her challenge this week.  I'm probably right there with her -- mixed media is difficult for me too.  She gave us a long list of media that we could choose from:

*  Pencils (wax, oil, watercolor, graphite/charcoal, chalk/pastel)
*  Pastels  (chalk, oil)  
*  Markers  (watercolor, pigment, water-based, acrylic)
*  Pens  (ink, glitter)
*  Pigments  (Gelatos, watercolor crayons, metallic rub ons)
*  Paints  (watercolor, acrylic, oil, poster, tempera)
*  Inks  (dye, chalk, distress, reinkers, pigment, hybrid)
*  Powders  (mica, pigment, chalk)
*  Sprays and airbrushing
*  Dimensionals  (embossing paste, gesso, fabric, found items, papers (collage, piecing), ephemera,  foils)
*  Heated elements - encaustic wax, embossing)

For my card I chose ink (stamped image), markers (alcohol markers to color the fern and the postage stamps), dimensionals (embossing paste for the two leaves) -- and I made a collage.  I actually added some reinker to my embossing paste, which was originally white.

Be sure to check out the CCEE Stampers blog to see what everyone else designed using mixed media.
